|Notable appearances:||Alligator; Alligator II: The Mutation|
An Alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The name alligator is an anglicized form of el lagarto the Spanish term for "lizard", the name by which early Spanish explorers and settlers in Florida called the alligator. Sometimes referred to simply as "Gator". A popular urban legend states that one or more alligators were reported habitating in the New York City sewer system, but his has since been proven false. This urban legend has been used as the inspiration for several horror films. In film, there have also been examples of mad scientists using alligator hormones to transform injured men into a race of mutant alligator people.
On the FX Network television series American Horror Story, two poachers named Roy and Lee illegally hunted alligators in the swamps of New Orleans, Louisiana. After bringing their latest kill back to their camp, they encountered a strange woman named Misty Day. Misty Day was a witch with a particular affinity towards nature and animals. Disgusted by their actions, she used her magic to bring the carcasses of the slain gators back to life and had them kill Lee and Roy.
